Let’s get to know each other.

Neighbors, introduce yourself and your art practice to The Main and learn more about the museum’s future plans. From Wednesday, November 1, to Wednesday, November 22, The Main’s director, Allison Agsten, will meet one-on-one with 50 L.A. artists in Beta Main, a test site for The Main Museum. At the end of each visit, artists may hang one original work or documentation of their work in the Beta Main galleries. Works should be two-dimensional and no larger than 3 ft. by 3 ft. because of limited space, we will not be able to hang works that exceed these dimensions. The resulting Office Hours exhibition will be on view Wednesday, November 29, through Sunday, December 17.

How to Sign Up

Office Hours is open to artists at any stage in their careers. This open-call program invites artists to reserve time slots to meet with the museum’s director beginning on Monday, October 9, at noon. Artists may sign up online at themainmuseum.org or on-site at the museum’s front desk. The time slots are first come, first served, and sign-up will close after all 50 slots are taken.
